DETROIT (AP) — Roope Hintz scored a power-play goal with 2:09 left in overtime to give the Dallas Stars a 5-4 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night.

It was the second win in a row for the Stars, who rallied from a one-goal deficit late in the third period to send it to the extra period.

After Tyler Bertuzzi gave the Red Wings a 4-3 lead with a power-play goal with 6:14 left in regulation, Jason Robertson tied it for the Stars with 1:13 remaining.

Ryan Suter, Joel Kiviranta and Esa Lindell also scored for Dallas, which outshot Detroit 31-28. Braden Holtby made 24 saves and improved to 9-0-2 in his last 11 starts against Detroit.

Robby Fabbri, Pius Suter and Dylan Larkin had the other goals for the Red Wings, whose modest two-game winning streak came to an end.

The Red Wings took a 3-2 lead midway through the second period on an unassisted goal by Larkin, who beat Holtby at the 9:16 mark. Lindell tied it again with 1:13 left in the period.

Suter opened the scoring for Dallas at 12:03 of the first period. But Fabbri tied it just 23 seconds later.

The Stars took the lead again when Kiviranta scored his first goal of the season at 5:50 of the second period. Suter tied it at 7:34.
